When I switch my pc on the POST appears to start but I get no picture on the monitor and the pc just does a 3 sec bleep then quite for 2sec and then bleeps agains for 3sec and this continues. I have tried starting up the pc with F8 pressed, no difference. If you press the DVD drive eject the draw opens. I took the cover off & the CPU fan is spining as normal.
I did have this bleeping noise once before when my hardrive went faulty, I can feel the hardrive spinning away, so I tried unplugging it & but it made no difference.
Any idea what to do.
I thought it might because I had accidently left my pc on overnight and all day, so I switched it off and since then it wont fire up.

If you have an AGP graphics card remove it and refit it. 3 beeps is normally no AGP card detected. Don't forget to earth yourself fist as static and damage the card.

I have tried re-seating the graphics card, but it has made no difference. Also the intermittent, is not just for 3 bleeps but carries on as long as the pc is switchedon.
Could it be the PSU?

I have re-seated the RAM & this has cleared the fault. I would like to say thanks to everyone who
helped me. Without your help I was really stuck.
Thanks everyone.
